You should really invest in a Haynes manual if you're getting that far inside it.

Cheers,

looking at mine.... still in a hundred pieces can be done with head off.
BUT like Kit said get the manual you will need to reseal piston sleeves with blue hylomar stuff, and the manual will give you all the correct torque settings too.

You will have to lift out the liners. There is a special tool to do it. They can only come out from the top.
The pins. May be kept in by a burr on the Piston. Put in New pins in every case. They WILL be scored. "Diamond like coating" is the only cure. Getting the pin out is a right bas***d.
